2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to alter t shirts to make arm hole smaller? on: October 01, 2012 12:06:17 AM
I'd use the "pinch and pin" method, might need someone to help you tho.
Put the tshirt on inside out and just pinch the fabric along the seam so it's a bit tighter then pin it as you go, take it off carefully OR draw a chalk line where the pins are (on both sides of the tshirt) and take them out again. Then just sew the one seam starting at the armhole, going under the arm then down your side as far as you like (or need to). If you're tshirts are the same size you could use this one as a pattern to resize the other ones too. I learnt this method from Threadbanger, I can get you a video if you like, just let me know Smiley

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Singer Vs Brother on: August 19, 2012 03:19:48 AM
I own two Brother machines, a cheap mechanical one and a mid range electronic one. I've used both of them a lot and recently 'broke' the cheaper one and it's not worth fixing. The older electronic one runs ok but has issues. I wish I still had my Nanna's vintage Singer, it never missed a beat!
I guess it depends on the type of sewing you do and how often you do it. My next purchase is going to be the heavy duty Singer machine because I sew all kinds of fabrics and I sew daily. But for what they cost to repair I'd be tempted to just buy another cheap one and use it until it dies then buy a new one lol.

I'd use a tshirt I like the fit of as a reference for the top part then just make it longer, flaring out towards the hemline and use a stretch fabric. Hope that helps Smiley

Gorgeous dress! I can't really tell either  Huh Maybe it's two pieces of fabric twisted together?
